Now You Know
Inspired by the popular TED Talks that have piqued public interest in recent years, two Mahoning County entities are teaming up to bring a similar concept to the area that will focus on Family, Health and Lifestyle topics. Meridian HealthCare and the Public Library of Youngstown & Mahoning County will present monthly Now You Know talks at various Library branches. The 45-minute talks will feature experts in their fields who can speak to prominent issues facing families and individuals today. The talks will be followed by a Question and Answer period.
